Hubby's Birthday Card
It is my Hubby's Birthday today so I thought I would share with my blogging friends the card I made him. He is awkward to make cards for as his love is trains and I don't have anything with trains, however he is a keen birdwatcher and like me, loves Owls.
The base of his card consists of Heat Resistant Acetate to which I added Alcohol Inks in shades, Caramel & Meadow. I overstamped with one of my Swirl stamps using Archival Coffee, then rubbed the ink off to reveal a clear image. This is a technique I was shown at Sheena's class In Kettering recently. The Owl image is from a Joanna Sheen CD - The Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection which I printed onto Gloss Photo Paper. Using my leaves stamps from Creative Impressions, I stamped, then coloured using Promarkers. These were carefully cut out and added to the image using 3D Foam. Brads were used to attach the acetate to the card.
His comment, I wish I could see that particular owl. At least he commented which is more than he usually does when I make anything.
I am a retired housewife, married for 47 years in October to Colin. He is my best friend and supports me in whatever I do.I joined Stampin' Up! in March 2015 and not looked back since. I love how their products match from card, ink, through to embellishments.
